WE print elsewhere the proceedings of the important deputation to the Board of Trade on the subject of the Institute of Preventive Medicine. There can be no doubt that, after the statement made by the Minister, the registration of the Society will shortly be an accomplished fact; a few words in the deed of registration or a few minutes of reference between the Board of Trade and the Home Office are all that is needed to safeguard Sir Michael Hicks-Beach's official scruples. The importance of the deputation, however, will not be limited to this: it shows again, as in the case of the Art Gallery, that men of science are no longer willing to be snubbed by men in office.
